Interior and Egress Lighting Calculations

Previous Feature: Switching - Next Feature: Outdoor Site Lighting Photometrics

“With Design Master, we’ve never had a job we couldn’t handle.”

Don Jewell, owner
Dubois, PA

Design Master Electrical allows you to perform your indoor photometric calculations in AutoCAD.  You no longer have to mess with cumbersome dxf files or transporting designs between AutoCAD and a third party photometric program.  You can perform both zonal cavity lighting calculations and point-by-point egress path calculations.

Interior lighting calculations

Easy to Build Rooms

Use Design Master Electrical to trace the architect’s background and add photometric information to the rooms.

Use IES Files to Create Accurate Lighting Calculations

Attach IES files to the light fixtures and Design Master Electrical will calculate accurate footcandle levels.

Use AutoCAD Grips to Edit Rooms after Architectural Changes

When an architect alters the layout of their rooms, Design Master Electrical allows you to easily modify your rooms to match, and then redo the calculations. Just use AutoCAD grips or the stretch command.

Room foot-candle lighting calculations

Lighting Level Report

Design Master Electrical will generate a report in AutoCAD showing the lighting levels and energy usage of each room.  The report includes the desired lighting and energy usage levels, as well as the actual designed levels.  This allows the designer to quickly evaluate how well their design meets the requirements.  

Calculations Automatically Update when the Design is Changed

Whenever the designer adjusts a room boundary, a light definition, or anything else related to the lighting design, the calculations are automatically updated.

Point-by-point egress photometric calculations

Egress Path Footcandle Levels

Design Master Electrical can perform interior point-by-point calculations for the purpose of showing lighting levels along an egress path.

Standard Lights Also Work for Egress Calculations

The egress lighting information is contained in your standard light fixtures.  You do not need a separate set of light fixtures to perform the calculations.

Egress Path Boundary

Egress path areas can be drawn on any AutoCAD drawing that you are working on.  Work on your normal lighting plan without having to duplicate any of your work.
